Magglio Ordonez officially announced his retirement Sunday in a ceremony before the Tigers hosted the New York Yankees. Among the highlights was a video tribute that included Ordonez’s pennant-winning home run in Game 4 of the 2006 AL championship series.

The 38-year-old Ordonez finishes his career with a .309 average over 15 seasons with Detroit and the Chicago White Sox. His 294 homers are the second-most by a Venezuela-born player, trailing only Andres Galarraga’s 399.

In 2007, the year after his ALCS homer eliminated Oakland, he became the first Tiger to win the batting title in 46 years. He hit .363 that year — the highest average by a Detroit player since 1937 — with 28 home runs, 54 doubles and 139 RBIs.
